Jesuit Institute London
Inspiration, resources and training for schools

The Jesuit Institute is a partnership of Jesuits and lay people in the UK who work to provide inspiration, resources and training for schools.

The Institute helps governors, school leaders, teachers, support staff, parents and pupils with the aim of “improvement in living and learning for the greater glory of God and the common good.” (St Ignatius Loyola, Constitutions n.440)

The eleven Jesuit schools of the British Province of the Society of Jesus work together better to understand, promote and live out the vision and spirit of St Ignatius Loyola.

The Jesuit Institute shares resources and good practice from around the world and creates and commissions new resources for schools.

The Jesuit Institute welcomes invitations to work with other schools in addition to schools in the Jesuit and Ignatian tradition.

November - Remembering the Dead
November is the month in which Catholics traditionally remember their dead. Some schools celebrate a 'Bethany Mass' (a Mass of the Holy Souls to which families are invited, especially those who have been bereaved in the past year). There is also the traditon of inviting families to complete November Lists and to place these on or before the altar during November.

An Introduction to the Mass
A new short briefing paper has been prepared: an introduction to the Mass for those unfamiliar with the Catholic liturgy. This may be a helpful resource to give to new staff who are not Catholics and attending Mass for the first time. It may also be useful for Catholics who want to learn a bit more.
